NEW: Hinckley Calls on TV Stations to Pull Sen. Whitehouse Ad
Tuesday, October 30, 2012
In a letter sent to ABC6, WPRI and WJAR, campaign manager Pat Sweeney claims Whitehouse’s “falsely and maliciously” suggests that Hinckley wants to “gut” Social Security and Medicare and give “tax breaks” to the wealthy. Sweeney a; states the Democrat’s campaign is deliberately misrepresenting where Hinckley stands on the issues.
The letter cites a recent Hinckley op-ed in the Providence Journal that states that he supports raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans as well as similar comments made in last week’s debate on WPRI.
“While we appreciate Senator Whitehouse’s participation in the political debate over how best to pay down the national debt and save our entitlement programs, Whitehouse for Senate has no right to knowingly and willfully distribute false information in a deliberate attempt to mislead the citizens and voters of Rhode Island,” Sweeney said.
